© FutureLearn team:
FutureLearn, an online learning platform, which has partnered with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the UK Public Health Rapid Support Team has created a course on tackling the coronavirus.
The course content itself will be updated based on the latest information and it is taught by senior clinical epidemiologists and researchers. We see this as an essential part of helping people stay safe and informed.
You can find the course here
It is completely free for anybody to take and everybody enrolled in the course will be able to access the materials indefinitely. It would be very helpful if you could pass these details on to your staff and parents, and link to this course from your school website or blog.
Message from City Lit:
This is an unprecedented time for all of us and we are trying our best to give you the latest information as we have it and to support you. We are making decisions with the overriding consideration of the wellbeing of our students and staff.
Following discussion with other London adult colleges, the Governing Body and the Unions, City Lit has decided to suspend face to face teaching as of 10pm tonight (Tuesday 17 March) for the remainder of this Spring term and potentially beyond. This means we will be closing our classes in our partnership venues from tonight.
We will be contacting our learners, tutors and venues individually to let them know about our contingency plans. Where possible, we will look to switch to providing learning remotely through email and online.
